My mom was actually in Weight Watchers at this time, and she tells a story about a recipie for macaroons made entirely out of cauliflower.  She actually tried to make them, and they were evidently completely revolting, which I think one should expect from creamed cauliflower deserts.
oh lord, that is disgusting. It reminds me of that ad a few years back on how to make kids eat their vegetables, they pictured broccoli in an ice cream cone and carrot sticks in a french fry carton, I don't remember what else. Cauliflower macaroons are much worse!

I bought some 70s recipe cards @ goodwill and decoupaged them onto lightswitch plates for the kitchen.  Nothing like an oversatuated photo of a crown roast with pineapple slices to add some klass.

I just spit mountain dew all over my monitor and keyboard -- I can just hear the computer guru in my office when I try to explain what happened "No, really Ed, Fluffy Mackerel Pudding and Fish Balls - I swear, let me show you.  Sigh.

Does anyone else think that the "freaky dried pod thingies" on the "Peach Melba" recipie (http://www.candyboots.com/wwcards/peachmelba.html) look like crispified venus fly traps?!

I lost this link so long ago! Thank you for finding it again, I needed a laugh.  Somebody posted this on Glitter a Loooooong time ago and I'm glad to see it resurrected. people need to know the horror of 70's diet foods.

Oh DEAR GOD, I laughed SO hard on the comments on the food...I nearly died. I think this is something to be enjoyed when I can laugh REALLY loud, because as of right now, I'm trying to quietly laugh or else my family will think I'm absolutely crazy, and frankly, it's painful.

Just to let you know, this inspired me to decorate my kitchen . . . I have a really cool vintage apron I bought from Ebay that's white with pink and black polka dots, and I hang it on the wall with a whisk in the pocket, but I take it down when I need to clean the house (it's my SuperWife apron). A while back I painted an ugly fruit clock to match it, but after seeing your post my friend and I went to the library and copied off some crazy cookbook pictures in black and white, she's washing them pink, and we're going to mat them and lay them in to the cabinets. Pictures when I'm done!

I can see why these are diet fod, because if you ate these you would probally end up being ill, and therefore loosing weight.
